PRACE SHAPE and Albatern: Producing power from waves

Albatern’s wave power generation product consists of buoyant Squid modules which have three arms and are capable of linking with up-to three other Squids. The Squid modules and their link-arms contain mechanisms to generate power, capturing the heave and surge motion of the waves via hydraulics. In this way, Albatern an innovative Scottish SME of 15 engineers has developed a highly scalable, modular wave power generator. Albatern’s project supported by PRACE SHAPE marked the start of the development of a physics code capable of simulating and predicting the power of a large scale Wavenet array (100 or more devices).

Simplifying Social Science Simulations

The power of HPC for solving problems is unrivalled, but it is not always easily accessible for small companies and those working in fields with low levels of computing expertise. The company Polyhedra Tech is aiming to change this through a PRACE SHAPE project. Its co-founder Pau Fonseca i Casas explains how they are optimising the SDLPS simulator for use in a number of different fields.

Coding for Re-Entry

Successfully navigating spacecraft safely back into the Earth’s atmosphere is one of the pinnacles of human engineering, where the slightest miscalculation can lead to catastrophe. Marco Cisternino of scientific computing SME OPTIMAD has been working alongside PRACE as part of its SHAPE Programme to try and optimise the codes needed for this endeavor for state-of-the-art parallel computing architectures.

Optimized Solutions for Treating Bone Fractures Will Soon Be Reality

Mathematical modeling has been a standard tool for engineers for decades, but in clinical medicine, it is still a newcomer. The Finnish start-up software company Disior Ltd. develops computational software for treating bone fractures. The purpose is to bring mathematical modeling, known for its benefits in research and industry, available for physicians.

PRACE SHAPE and NEXIO SIMULATION: Amping up electromagnetic modelling

NEXIO SIMULATION is a French SME and subsidiary of Nexio Group, develops electromagnetic simulation software called CAPITOLE-EM to study the electromagnetic behaviour of any product during the design process, before the manufacturing phase. After a first step performed locally in France using the HPC-PME initiative, their PRACE SHAPE Project has allowed them by accessing to HPC resources and expertise in HPC and numerical simulation to jump from a personal computer version of this software to an HPC version.

Juan Yacht Design teams up with PRACE SHAPE to make faster sailboats

Juan Yacht Design, a Spanish SME specialised in the design of cruising yachts and racing boats especially for America’s Cup and the Volvo Ocean Race, received an allocation via the PRACE SME HPC Adoption Programme for Europe (SHAPE) as part of the 15th cut-off of PRACE Preparatory Access. This will allow them to implement LES (Large Eddy Simulations) models to simulate flow around sails to replace the RANS (Reynolds Averaged Navier Stokes) models that are standard in the industry.
